Why everyone should take a geography class, especially now

Why everyone should take a geography class, especially now | Resources | Scoop.it
Geographical literacy remains vital—particularly for those of us who live in (for the time being at least) the world’s preeminent military and economic superpower. Geography is necessary for understanding why the overthrow of a government in Libya contributed to an unprecedented surge of migrants into Europe, why Ukraine has been split between East and West amid its conflict with Russia, and why China’s neighbors are alarmed at the new islands under construction in the South China Sea. And as we learned during last year’s Ebola panic, an understanding of African geography could have helped explain why an outbreak in West Africa should not lead to the quarantining of people from Kenya or Tanzania. In the years to come, as the effects of climate change on everything from sea level rise to deforestation to drought quite literally reshape the world we live in, an understanding of geography will be necessary for mitigating and adapting to the consequences.

A basic understanding of geography is a prerequisite for any informed citizen, and globalization means that is even more important than ever.

The 7 Biggest Language Learning Blunders | Resources | Scoop.it
There are good mistakes and there are bad mistakes.

The good mistakes are the ones that help you make progress, that show you
where the gaps in your knowledge lie. Language learners make these mistakes
constantly, and the best ones use them to improve day after day.

The bad mistakes often have little to do with language itself. They're the
ones that can throw the proverbial wrench into the language learning
process as a whole, overloading your system or cause your learning to slow

Podcasts are the New Listening Trend that you CANNOT Ignore | Resources | Scoop.it
There was a time, maybe back in 2008 (and I am so old that this seems like
last year to me), when you would have heard the word "Podcast" and
rightfully passed it by. Podcasts have been around since the 1980s but were
always reserved for the nerdier folks among us. Maybe research scientists?
Programmers?

The world is ever changing, and today though it's a different world.
